SMALL PART STORAGE -- MY WAY!

About: 1945 was a very good year. No, not for wine ... for me. I was born. Yes, I'm old, Father William, but brillig, and my slithy toves still gyre and gimble in the wabe. So let me welcome you to the Little Sho...

Intro: SMALL PART STORAGE -- MY WAY!

I built it MY WAY!

Step 1: MY BENCH IS GROSS

My bench is gross, I fear.

It can't hide behind a curtain.

This mess I have to clear.

I know I can, of this I'm certain.

This bench is really full

Of things from every byway.

And more, more stuff to clear.

I'll do it my way.

Step 2: SMALL PARTS

Small parts, I've quite a few,

All labeled, so those I won't mention.

I'll do what I have to do.

I'll get it done without exemption.

Step 3: A SIMPLE SHELF

I planned a simple shelf

Made from scraps left by the highway.

No more, no more than this.

I'll build it my way.

Step 4: SNIPPED OFF SKEWERS

Yes, there were times

I'm sure I knew,

Snipped off skewers of strong bamboo,

Will surely hold, I have no doubt.

They grabbed the wood, now I could shout

I glued it all,

The shelf stood tall.

I built it my way.

Step 5: SECURED IT TO THE STUDS

I secured it to the studs

Then filled in all the small parts

Now sitting side by side

Lined up like works of art.

To think I did all that,

And may I say, not in a shy way,

I built it my way.

And now, the end is here,

And so I face a shelf that's working.

My friend, I'll say it clear

I built this shelf without shirking.

And I know this shelf was made

All with scraps tossed by the highway

And more, much more than this, I built it my way.
